Traffic congestion at the North Farm Industrial Estate

Greg met with Tunbridge Wells Borough Council's new Cabinet Member for Planning and Transportation, Brian Ransley, plus representatives from Kent County Council and the Highways Agency, to discuss the worsening problem of traffic congestion in and around the North Farm Industrial Estate.

Greg said:

"Local residents are completely fed-up with being stuck in traffic jams around North Farm and I wanted to take the opportunity to discuss ways to help relieve the problem with the new Borough Council's Cabinet Member for Planning and Highways, and other key organisations.

"We all agreed that action shouldn't wait for dualling of the A21 to begin. We agree that a comprehensive list of potential improvements should be prepared which can happen in the short and medium, term. Both Cllr Ransley and I agreed that this work needs to be carried out as a matter of urgency and we will meet again, along with representatives from the business community, in a few months time to look at the results of the study and decide next steps."
